The South Norwood Community Festival 2016 runs from July 2 to the grand finale in South Norwood Recreation Ground on Sunday, July 10.
The Festival is a free family event, with its activities staged within a few minute’s walk from Norwood Junction station.
Organised for the community by volunteers, it helps local charities to raise money at a festival which includes a fun fair, music of all kinds, food of every description, and a varied programme of events.
Among the music acts lined up to play are Ruby Red, Ten Tonne Ska, Random Acts, Rock Pixies and Stone Blind performing, along with another dozen or so bands on the main stage.
There is also a kids zone, performance area, arts and crafts stalls, a wide variety of food stands and, of course, a beer tent.
